    1. Read the manual.
    2. Read your contract (if applicable) before you sign.
    3. Avoid using your phone while driving, and use a headset/speaker
    phone if you do.
    4. Before changing the ringtone to something other than 'standard'
    rings, ask yourself, "Will this annoy the shit out of others around me
    when they are forced to listen to it?"
    5. Join http://www.phonescoop.com.
    6. Anything you don't understand, just ask us.
    7. Enjoy.

    Along with all the other good advice, talk all your friends and family into
    joining Verizon also. Then calling them will come out of your Mobile to
    Mobile minutes.

    Realize that you don't have to yell into the phone in order to be heard.

  8. Use your phone prudently, unless you have the money to spare. Take
    advantage of nights/weekends when you can. Remember, a cell phone is a
    "convenience" unless you use it for business or emergencies. If you can
    afford it, use the phone for everything. If you can not afford it, then
    consider the 14 day worry free, and forget the peer pressure. Having a cell
    phone can be kool, but not if you have to skip food/drink/rent.

    In a "nutshell" Don't go crazy, pay close attention to your bill, pay
    on-time, and congratulations. dr.

  9. Good advice, unless you change to a carrier/plan with free incoming calls.
    Then it doesn't matter who calls you, nor what carrier they have. Yes, I
    understand that VZW doesn't have free-incoming calls, but we do have free
    "in-network" as long as all your friends/family are vzw. Good Luck. dr

    I will say the 6015 is a good choice & a steal at what little you
    probably paid for it. I have the nokia 3589 and just smirk as my
    friend's lg 4500 drops calls or is "searching for service" while I chat
    happily away on my el cheapo phone. Actually, I got ripped off- I paid
    $19.99 and then three weeks later it went down to $9.99. Oh well still
    a great phone for the price, and I've heard the 6015 is just as
    reliable.
